Internet:1 Misioneros:0‏

Another week with excitement with the internet-- We tried all day yeterday and finaly could enter half n hour before having to enter the pension for the night. Here we are in the 7th place we have tried to write home, and the internet isfinally working. So we are finishing our time this morning.
Just the best week on earth again. The riain finally stopped during the wek ad the road dried up to be abloe to ge around in bici.
This week we had interviews with President Franco. I learned so mjuch and was just so edified. I received so much helpwith goal stting, and I am so grateful for that. Goals have always been a struggle for me-- so I feel that, in the spirit of prayer and following the HOly Ghost, I will be guided so that I may acheive my potental that my Heavenly Father has prepared for me..
We spoke on the radio twice this week. Once in the colony, and thinking that we were already radio stars, we went to the local radio here in Naineck and they gave us a time. They want us to come back every week to speakand preach on the radio! We will see how everything turns out. I am so grateful that the Lord is providing so many marvelous ways for us to reach out to so many people here. I know that this is the work of the Lord and that he has his han in every phase of it.
THe bikes are working incredibly. We have had to weld, re weld and reweld so many parts of my bike... they dont really make bikes for people like me here. But everything is orking out great :)
I love this work. I kow that the church is true, and the Book of Mormon keeps changing my life. The atonement is real! I just know it.

Alittlebit of divisions to go save the world.

                              Talking on the colony radio-- a littlleeee hot in there.

Primavera en mi en mi alma hay!‏

So this is going to be a shorty...

Raining non stop since Last wednesday. Its hard to sleep with our tin roof and so much rain...

I redcorded my voice and my testimony when I finished the book of Mormon neew years eve. That book is amazing and I a so grateful for it. I shar it with EVERYONE. The office kind of gets wound up for always having too send us more books for, but they can live with it :) I know the book is true, and that THIS IS THE TRUE AND LIVING CHURCH HERE ON THIS EARTH!
The letters showup seconds after I type...
Church attendance was sooooo low. Only 17 people. The peole that showed up came walking barefoot in the mud. Moto nor bikes were an option because of the mud. I was asked to give a talk... after the reunion already started. I found my notes on the talk of april 2014 of Pte Uchtdorf-- gratitud. Wow. I felt so humbled. I spoke on the subject, and myheart was full.
Love you all! Love this work!

Okay momma! So to answer your questions!

 momma ;) But FEED THEM WELL! I need the good karma :) You can tell that I mend
all of my clothes....


I want to share the conversion story of David and Leticia Recalde who were both baptized
this last friday in the little pond behind the house of the Diaz family-- el laguito que cambia
vidas. One day in divisions with Urcino Diaz, our group leader, we ran into a joven and the
Spirit just told me HEY!!! YOU NEED TO TALK TO HIM! This was Mirco, who a month
later received the Aaronic priesthood. He plays the role of father in the family.

His mother finally attended church when he was ordained. We invited her to come under our
priesthood mango tree to be present. It reminded me when momma came to all of my advanccings
in the priesthood as well. This whole time we were teaching David and Leticia, the younger
siblings of Mirco. After about 3 lessons, we asked if they even believe in God. No interest was
shown. They both answered no because of the loss of their little brother, their grandfather and
the abandonment of their dad. So we slowed down the lessons-- REALLY slow. But it was
amazing to see them little by little attend church and just come to love the gospel.

I love this family. David was interviewed to receive the priesthood this last Sunday. He has
changed so much. He just gave me a big hug after his baptism. Totally destroyed my shirt, but
worth every penny. Leticia just rocks. You can see the light of Christ just shining out of her.
They both have firm testimonies of the gospel now.

bautiiissmmoooooooooo of Leticia and David :)
